Don’t be surprised if you walk into Derm F/X Tattoo and find a fellow patron taking a nap on the couch. The shop’s regulars are known to come in and hang out, which is perfectly fine with the staff. Derm’s three artists—Cody, Scotty, and Chentelle—have spent 10 years making their studio the type of place where clients also feel like friends. It’s probably not hard for them to bond with their patrons: approximately 98% of their work is custom tattoos they’ve created by collaborating with clients. And they’re honest—if they feel a guest is asking for art that isn’t doable, they’re not afraid to say so. Unlike the key to never losing one's keys, Derm’s excellent reputation isn’t exactly a secret, as they have attracted clients such as Seahawks players Kam Chancellor and Marcus Trufant.
If little Goldilocks visited Beauty Nails in Kent, she would find five spa pedicure chairs to be too big, and one to be just right. All ages are welcomed into the salon, which houses five manicure stations along with pedicure thrones for adults and kids. The salon's technicians brush nails with OPI and China Glaze polish. For extra-long wear, they can bust out the CND Shellac polish for a manicure that lasts up to three weeks without chipping or scratching—a much better way to preserve a fresh manicure than breaking into a school and laminating your hands. The staff’s services also extend into skincare such as facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, and permanent makeup.
For more than a quarter century, the skilled stylists, nail technicians, and massage therapists of Today’s Chalet have helped relax and beautify patrons throughout Washington and Oregon. A selection of “flavors” allows patrons to customize mani-pedis with the scent of champagne and rose, chocolate, cranberry, or seasonal treatments, and parties for both children and adults encourage group pampering.
Dr. Carla Yamashiro and her friendly staff improve oral health with progressive technology, such as digital x-rays and Velscope oral cancer detectors, and place an emphasis on preventative care. During the comprehensive exam, Dr. Carla carefully considers and cross-examines each tooth, scanning for cavities and periodontal diseases. A technician snaps a complete series of x-rays with a digital x-ray machine that reduces radiation output by 80% while producing images nearly instantly. A hygienist then bathes bite bones, scrubbing off tartar and debris, leaving dental domiciles cleaner and smoother than a freshly laundered con artist.
